Hall picks Crimson

Harvard lands a huge pledge with three-star center Mike Hall.

The Harvard Crimson hosted the most talent in the history of the school this past weekend, and now they have one of the better remaining centers in the 2012 class in the fold. The athletic and talented Mike Hall pulled the trigger and joined the Crimson.

"I went up there this past weekend and I really enjoyed myself up there," said Hall of Harvard. "It just felt like the best fit for me. They have a great academic program and with what Coach (Tommy) Amaker is building I feel that I could fit into his system. All the recruits were great people. I feel we can build a dynasty. The players were great. I had a really fun time. I just felt like Harvard was the right fit for me."

Hall, who is from College Park, Georgia, was one of many national recruits on campus. Now that he is in the fold, he is hoping some of the other guys who were on campus with him for the visit will join him in the future.

"Coach Amaker brought up some great guys," said Hall of the weekend. "Zena Edosomwan in the 2012 class, I am trying to talk with him now. I enjoyed spending time with him, Stephen Domingo, Brannen Greene, both of them are great players. I just enjoyed spending time with all of the guys."

In picking Harvard, Hall selected the Ivy League school over more traditional high profile programs such as California, Florida State, Ole Miss, Oklahoma State and others. Still Hall feels that selecting Harvard was right for him, and hopes to bring the Crimson to the NCAA Tournament very soon.

"It would mean a lot to me," said Hall of leading the Crimson to a run in March. "I am already excited about it. I feel with Coach Aamaker and the players we have a shot to get into the Big Dance and competing to go far in the tournament."

Hall is a three star prospect, and one of the most highly sought after recruits in the history of the school. He now joins two-star prospect Evan Cummins in the class for the Crimson.
